I’m a self taught guitarist whose been playing almost 15 years. I wanted to get past some plateaus in my playing and learn theory and Mike has been great for it. Mike has a relaxed vibe and takes a real interest in seeing you progress. He mixes in his teaching with great insights and tips in how to apply it to your playing. His lessons are flexible and focused around where you want to go with your playing.He also goes beyond and tries to link you in with other people to play music with or venues/gigs that could be a good fit. If you are looking to start playing or feel a bit stuck in your playing, Mike is a great teacher and definitely worth checking more

I wish I had come here sooner. I've been teaching myself to play the guitar for the last 12 months using the Internet with not much success. Mike provides structured lessons and sets expectations with time frames as to when you can start playing songs or doing improvisation etc. He's very patient and explains things well. He is also able to mix up the class if things get tough to keep the lessons enjoyable. I'm really loving my guitar more

Mike is an extremely talented musician. I'm very happy with my guitar lessons and the progress I'm making. Mike is able to mix up the class to include supplementary material and incorporate other aspects of music to give the bigger picture such as singing and other musical instruments. If you want to master music and become a really good guitarist at the same time then I recommend you give Mike a more

Mike has been teaching my 12 year old daughter the guitar for the last 6 months. She's been making great progress. His teaching style is very encouraging, structured and he is able to introduce alternative things when he can see she is struggling. He keeps her motivation high by teaching her things she wants to learn. I recommend Mike for anyone with children wanting to learn more

Both my kids have been having music lessons with Mike for the past year, one on guitar (age 12) and one on piano (age 7). Mike is a great teacher and is friendly, patient and easy going. He teaches the art of musicality, rather than only technical perfection, which I think can be rare. Would highly recommend without hesitation!read more

Mike is an awesome teacher for kids and adult. Not only Mike is an exceptional professional himself, he's very patience and has unique techniques to teach and motivates his students. Mike is also very flexible and will tailor the course for individuals' needs. He's great in simplifying complex concepts to young children. I'm so pleased to see my 5 years old son progress with his guitar skills and my 10 years old daughter grows her enthusiasm with piano; and my husband uncovering his musical talents. All star teacher!!

After playing piano for 15 years and taking a break of 10 it's great to finally be back. I feel I'm getting closer to the level I used to be and better than before each lesson. If you want to learn piano then this is the place to be.
